Leather Carry Strap


The smell and feel of well-tooled leather is simply unmatched. I recently partnered with a Montana saddle maker to design and create a means of carrying our rod cases in style. As an addition to any new rod tube, this fully adjustable and removable carrying strap not only looks incredible, but adds another layer of ease while traveling with your favorite fly rod.

My first mentor in Maine, was a cabinetmaker from Boston. His talent superseded him and the willingness  to share his craft, impacted my life forever. In his home hung a Pennsylvania long rifle in curly maple that he’d made. His tutelage began by engrossing me in the history of that piece, how they were made originally, and nwhat they were made I became a cabinetmaker that day / at least in my own mind.
Paul too was a fly fisherman – in the classic style. In homage to him, comes “The Classic” curly maple that is selected, shaped and finished much like the long rifles we made, finished similarly yielding that warm caramel hue that beckons your spirit, touch and story.
Thank you Paul…

Having a quality fly rod on the river is essential…why not carry it in style with the A.L. Swanson rod case? Made from the finest hardwoods, metals, shell and leather available by a master furniture maker, these tubes will not only keep your favorite rod safe during travel, but allow you to travel in style. Each case is made of eight staves, meticulously shaped and glued under pressure into an octagon. They are then mounted on a lathe and turned to a perfect cylinder, one at a time…by hand. Once coated with marine varnish, each case is polished to a buttery smooth finish, that beckons your touch. They can accommodate a 4 piece 10′ rod, with custom lengths (for longer rods) available as well.

Diameter: 3″
Length: 34″
Weight: 2 lbs.

Finished with a water-resistant varnish, the tube requires minimal to no care. The leather straps can be oiled with a leather conditioner, if needed. USA.
